Authentic, creative, original and outstanding. Exciting and delicious experience with amazing food and service. The best dishes were lamb shank and aged feta grill. We look forward to returning.

This was a wonderful dining experience. The food was excellent as well as the service. We had lots of small plates to share and all were outstanding. Octopus, kofte, beef ribs and beetroot were amazing. Great wine list and cocktails. This became our favourite restaurant in London

Surprisingly tentative staff, far too much cutlery and food that would have been embarrassed by contact with proper Turkish food on Green Lanes. Save your money - go to N15.

Yehmi claims to be Turkish but they don’t offer the traditional Turkish dishes. The dishes are good tasting but choice in menu is very limited.
Nice ambiance, very good service. Happened to be very noisy for us.
Overall, we felt we could have had a better overall experience, food & value if we went to another restaurant in same area. Thanks

Exceptional tastes achieved. I love "traditional" Turkish, so wasn't sure what to expect. This is upscale for sure, so its not about bulk, but rather taste combinations. It almost felt like a mix between Ottolenghi, Greek and Spanish food. can't explain it.. but it was amazing.

We had a fantastic meal and service to match! The menu has a Turkish influence, but is more modern and upscale than a traditional Turkish restaurant. The decor is very chic, white washed old brick and nice quiet lighting. We started with a cocktail; I had a gin and house made tonic served over solid ice blocks and my wife had the Yeni, a delicious Prosecco vodka strawberry concoction. My wife and I had three amazing appetizers and split a main course of lamb, plus we had dessert, so we enjoyed a full array of tastes. Our server Ricardo was excellent and helped with descriptions of each item. I'm a foodie and seldom do I have a meal where the food, service, drinks/wine, and ambiance come together so well, and without pretentiousness. And another positive: tables are not arranged on top each other, so you are not bothered by other tables too close to you. Enjoy!!

Outstanding. My Turkish wife and I (a Brit) booked for our wedding anniversary. Not because it’s particularly fancy. But because the food is amazing. A fresh modern take on Turkish cuisine that is as far away from the kebab you’re used to as Istanbul (where they slaps have branches) is from beak st. Honestly the most surprising, delicious and enjoyable meal we’ve had in years. And the staff are amazing, knowledgeable and attentive. All I can set is book it. It will be amazing.

It is good to find modern Turkish in a more sophisticated setting in London. The decor was sleek and not over the top with Turkish themes. The food was tasty, although not amazing for the price. The service was excellent.

I went with 4 friends and we ordered all the small dishes, all were delicious particular stand outs were the tartare, scallops, apple and mange tout salad and the desserts were especially good. Really like the way dishes come out one by one or in little clusters, some might find the service a little slow but everything was worth the wait. Ordering the smaller plates and plenty of bread made the meal very affordable. If its just two of you a couple of small plates and share a main, Otherwise the bill can get very big very quick but the dishes are immaculate. The Chef really knows what he is doing and its the little touches like the amuse bouche little dumpling you get at the beginning that give you a sense that this is food from Istanbul served with aplomb. I would go definitely go back.

I’d been looking forward to coming here for a while and it didn’t disappoint. The food was delicious - we were recommended the prawn in vine leaves and they were definitely the best thing on the menu. Which says a lot as all the food was delicious, and the cocktails too. Great service and decor.
